At Horizon, we go above and beyond to ensure the highest industry safety standards are not just met – they are exceeded.

The Horizon Safety Management System

Our Horizon Safety Management System (HSMS) utilizes a proactive instead of reactive approach to safety. Developed and monitored by a Safety Committee composed of industry professionals from all levels and trades within our company, HSMS is a team-driven solution to safety with phenomenal proven results.

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Horizon Mud has a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 0 as compared to private industry (oil and gas extraction) average of 1.1.

At the end of the day, if we can’t do it safely – we won’t do it.


How we go above and beyond for our clients:

  • Comprehensive binder containing over 250 SDS or electronic access (whichever is preferred)
  • OSHA Globally Harmonized System (GHS) compliant SDS “E-binder” with GHS compliant label printing capabilities
  • Client access to our vast SDS E-binder from any smart phone, tablet or PC with print capabilities
  • Face time with our Mud Engineers to ensure derrick hands know about the chemicals they will be handling
